post what you're spinning today
recent purchases, lads?
It's a blank CD, comes with designs, tracklist etc. Pretty cool. Pic related.
Listened to this earlier, the N Type & Surge and Inkke remixes were my favourites. Will have to force myself to listen to Bop - Punk's Not Dead later. Also need to listen to the new DJ Earl EP, should be good hopefully.
I got a bunch of Nice 'N' Ripe off Soulseek so I might listen to that as well later.
Is IDM still a taboo in /bleep/
just picked this up today. In the mood for some synthy goodness.
no shit, I obvs hit up OPN, but still Sophie was high on my priority list that day.
Vessel clashed with Omar Souleyman too, had to hit up Omar because that's some once in a lifetime shit and Kieran showed up on stage and juts grinned for a bit and then left. Fucking hilarious.
does vessel run/own astro:dynamics
i did not know that call super is ondo fudd btw
there are people out there that actually like that new hudmo track...think about that for a minute
dj harlow is pearson sound too btw??
>just the other day wondered if shanghai den is faltydl alias
>today the trickster gets interviewed
"8. You released a companion poem with your album announcement—how does poetry influence your music?
I've been equally moved by poetry as I have by music in my lifetime. The point of the poem, which hasn't been talked about much if at all, was that the entire album was ghostwritten by Shanghai Den. The entire album. So do with that what you will. Shanghai Den became too powerful. Took over everything. I wrote the poem, she made the album? It's a real whodunit."
i am officially confused
lmao what the fuck
i was thinking last night how different In The Wild sounds to his other shit
hasn't he started releasing new shit under his proper name too?
i think he wants to be the american four tet
its too feel good for me. med school has had better releases
i just can't connect with stuff like this i mean everything about it is good but i just can't give in to this stuff
what'd you guys think of the semi-new Golden Retriever?
I never really liked Bop's style of D&B but I'll listen to it eventually. Generally prefer higher BPM stuff, I can see that it's technically really impressive but I'll probably end up liking it less than Keeno's LP and Royalston's LP but more than Rawtekk's LP. I've only now just realised Med School have put out 4 albums this year, pretty impressive.
I always liked it cos it was more ambient/idm influenced which was where my backgrounds came from so each to their own. Been meaning to check out keeno's lp, heard rave reviews from friends
(BANDULU001)  Kahn & Neek - Percy, Fierce
(BANDULU002)  Kahn & Neek - Chevy, Thief In The Law
(BLACKBOX032)  Kahn - Kahn EP
(HOTLINE001)  Kahn & Neek - Backchat, Dubchat
(MEDI064)  Kahn - Dread
Honestly basically everything of his. Gorgon Grime is also really good.
Yeah that's the reason why I never liked it as much, prefer 160+ BPM a lot more. New Keeno is really nice, has some full on Jungle tracks on it and also som slower more Ambient stuff. It's not even funny how much better Med School is than Hospital now.
Stakka & Skynet/their aliases are way too underrated.
(UDFRCD04)  Stakka & Skynet - Clockwork (The Dangerous Drums Return) [2CD]
>Drum & Bass, Techstep, Neurofunk, Studio Album + Mix CD
I think my favourite work by them is as Psion. Tyrant is just so unbelievably massive.
Torn Hawk is the fucking man
I know it's not really /bleep/, but it's LIES and dank as fuck.
He did own the early 00s as far as Liquid Funk so in a way I'm glad he's successful, but every new Hospital main release is just so sub-standard to what they used to put out which is really frustrating. They are also really pushing that whole 'live D&B' thing much more than back when it was just London Elektricity doing it, especially with Netsky.
Some of that Keeno album is like that, some of it is a lot better. Etherwood's s/t last year was all Liqquid Funk but it was really well made.
>i really care for the weirder edges of dnb these days anyway
Have you heard Horo Vision that came out a few days ago? Again, was way to slow for my own tastes.
no i haven't, have dug a few horo releases though. i see what you by dnb being too slow and i don't mind jungle at the higher tempos, but i find the new strands of dnb have made the slower and looser things interesting again i guess
It's not actually anything new, it's just a label sampler of everything out on Samura Horo (apart from Scope obviously).
The D&B being made today is probably more interesting and innovative than it's ever been, but if someone gave me choice between all this new Exit/Critical/Samurai sound or 96-99 era Techstep despite it not being so much different from the Jungle that came before it, I'd take Techstep everytime without even having to think about it:
Truly the best time for D&B.
I've never liked techno before but this is amazing. Is there any more like this, /bleep/?
Yeah. In here: https://mega.co.nz/#F!FQohzYYA!elH7Myk0DPE9We-2DFtYyg
Check out the following labels:
Last few releases on Prototype Recordings
Later releases on Audio Blueprint/Underfire
Later releases on Hardleaders
There may be the odd LP somewhere there as well.
Function is really good, another underrated label.
(CHANEL9602CD)  Digital - Dubzilla:
>Drum & Bass LP + Mix CD
Thanks mates, really digging Plays Bee Mask and The Lemon of Pink.
The most similar to it would probably be No U-Turn. Specifically the later releases (the earlier stuff is god tier Jungle so check it out though) and it's sub-label Saigon. It's ran by Nico who works very closely with DJ Trace for a lot of things and Torque is one of the best D&B compilations/LPs anyone will ever hear.
(NUTCD01)  Various - Torque [2CD]:
>Drum & Bass, Jungle, LP + Mix CD
Other similar ones would be stuff I've already mentioned, Audio Blueprint/Underfire, Penetration Recordings, Protoype Recordings. Also Virus Recordings, the earlier stuff on Oblivion (Fierce's label), Tech Itch Recordings and Defcom Recordings. Most of BC Recordings is like DSCI4. Also check out the Techsteppin comp on Emotif Recordings.
DJ Trace is one of my favourite producers and I also really likeDSCI4 as well. Techstep is just too good.
My most recent purchase.
I know Shogun Audio gets a fair bit of flak in /bleep/ but i gotta say i like this release.
>I know Shogun Audio gets a fair bit of flak in /bleep/
Really, I thought people liked Rockwell and Spor (back before he went full retard and only produced as Feed Me). I still haven't listened to that release yet.
The new Technimatic album was pretty bland though, surprised that shit even got released on Shogun, should have ended up on Viper or something like that.
Yeah i was thinking of grabbing that new Technimatic but decided to pass, wasn't quite interesting enough.
Was it ever decided what was the best fabric/fabriclive? If not then i vote for 58
I wasn't really into Goldie's FL when I heard it. Might be time for a re-listen.
There's now way I can make one clear best FL (maybe LTJ Bukem or DJ Marky) but I really liked Calibre's and DJ EZ's, and I was very surprised by how good DJ Hazard's was.
This is probably my favourite cover.
anyone checked out the new Submerse yet?
was OK but not groundbreaking
sometimes tinny drone that tried to be ""dark"" ambient but didn't capture the right atmosphere (too abrasive or not captivating enough)
not a favorite for me though i can admire gr's skill or whatever
the reason its guilty pleasure stuff is that all those choons from 2009-early 2011 like fantastic mr fox, some of faltydls stuff, a select few of the jamie xx remixes were latched onto by people who didn't know about dance music history via jamie xx being in some band or other and James Blake having rebloggable hair (which is what turns any scene into 'guilty pleasure' territory). it then got worse when no one could think of anything new to do with '''post dubstep future garage uk bass''' and it all ended up sounding like varying ratios of submerse, burial, and mount kimbie
I reckon held is far, far more guilty pleasure than koreless anyways
held was pretty disappointing after his first EP. koreless however is just a couple of easy listening tunes that you enjoy when you hear them once every couple months
Holy Other EP is genuinely really good. One of Tri Angle's best.
The LP is p bad but I'd take it any day over that Koreless Yugen crap. Wtf was that. Some of his earlier tracks from circa 2010 blogs were p ok tho.
if anyone's a fan of workshop in here, workshop 01 and workshop 06 have gotten repressed
kasra's for sure
>forward thinking tunes with mad rhythms interlocking perfectly
>still paying tribute to less new sounds
>great sense of direction and purpose
>ends with stray - timbre vip
if you haven't heard it then hear it
i was considering buying workshop 01 recently, but i have that workshop EP on laid which has use me on it as well (slightly different mix), plus that kassem mosse masterpiece on the flip so I decided against it
but now im reconsidering. £8 is too good to pass up really
